International aviation fuel provider Air BP has taken over the management and operation of fuel services at Cape Town International (CPT) in South Africa, effective June 1st.

According to a company statement, the operation will be managed through the Cape Town Airport Fuelling Services joint venture with a team of 45 employees. Both management and into-plane operations fall under the agreement, which will remain under Air BP’s management for a period of three years. This new addition complements the company’s existing operations at South Africa’s OR Tambo International in Johannesburg, which it has been managing for the past five years.

“Air BP is committed to working closely with airport authorities, bringing our industry leading expertise and capabilities in fuel operations management to help them manage risk and run the most efficient and effective operations possible,” commented Air BP Southern Africa GM Anthony Leon.
